Hold the phone! The New York Times reports that the IRS data retrieval tool has not been functioning since March 3.
The IRS data retrieval tool allows the FAFSA system to electronically pull the tax information that it needs to calculate your federal financial aid and the family contribution to your student's college education. When all goes well, you just click a button on the FAFSA system and you're done. Well, that's the plan.
Shepherding our children to adulthood demands our love, our attention, and our acceptance of who they are.
